    The switch screen for camera move is much better. Camera quality looks better too. Seems snappier on loading app pairs and on switching landscape/portrait.

    Agreed. I'm hoping that it will be a relatively big improvement with more of the functionality "baked in."

    So it's likely that I've done something and or one of the updates went south, but is anyone noticing the camera taking a lot longer than normal to launch ? (several seconds )

    Just tried it both Duo open and Duo folded back. The camera opens promptly in both configurations...

    Thanks, given that and my ongoing issues with the fingerprint reader, a reset/restore may be in order. Sigh....

    I'm leaning more and more towards trying one of these to not only replace my very aged but fully functional Google Pixel 1, but also as a "notebook" in the hospital setting like I alluded to before. Question:

    Can you "screen clip" into Android OneNote from any other app using the pen?

    Yes-ish...

    Using the Badge Feature you can, but you will need to grab the screen grab first, the camera button is Office Lens...

    Huh? I know nothing about the device. Can you elaborate a bit? Are you saying more along the lines of taking a global screenshot of the phone and then you paste it within OneNote app? Is there any way of cropping it?

    My idea scenario is opening a PDF of patient records from another provider, clipping certain portions, and pasting them into the OneNote page to highlight, etc.
